Course details

On this free Try course you’ll learn about some of the features of Microsoft PowerPoint. PowerPoint is one of the most popular presentation software applications in the world, capable of producing anything from simple slideshows to complex multimedia presentations. You’ll learn the basics of creating and styling slides, as well as how to add images, text and bullet point lists. By the end of the session you’ll have created your own multi-page presentation, which you can save to work on later. You’ll also find out more about our team of tutors and our learning centres and have the opportunity to learn about follow-on courses.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.

What do I need to join the course?

You don’t need any previous experience, just a willingness to come and take part.

What do I need to bring with me to the first session?

We recommend that you bring a notebook and a pen. If you have your own laptop with Microsoft PowerPoint software installed, you are welcome to bring it.

How will I be taught?

This course will be delivered by a friendly and experienced tutor in one of our computer suites. This hands-on session will include demonstrations as well as group activities and individual exercises.

What will I learn?

During the session you will participate in some basic presentation software activities to get you started using Microsoft PowerPoint and you will gain further insight into what presentation software can do. The session will include opening a new presentation, typing in slides, changing slide formats, inserting images and using bullet points. The tutor will explain how these digital skills can benefit you at home and/or work, and what else you could learn on a follow on course.

What could I do next?

Once you’ve attended this course you’ll be in a position to decide whether you wish to continue to learn more about the subject and perhaps sign up to our six week ‘computers for complete beginners’ or ‘computers for improvers’ courses. Alternatively if an accredited qualification is something you aspire to then enrolling on our ‘improve your computer and digital skills’ courses would be a great starting point. If you want to try a different subject then we offer a range of opportunities in English, maths, employability, creative skills, retail, photography, supporting teaching and learning in schools (STLS) and much more.

Can we help you to learn?
